Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyers Firm Explains How the Fourth Amendment Protects Against Unreasonable Search and Seizures

Minneapolis, Minnesota -

Ryan Garry, Criminal Attorney, with law firm based in Minneapolis, MN, wants to emphasize the importance of the Fourth Amendment in protecting the accused from unreasonable searches and seizures. Ryan Garry points out that the Fourth Amendment is the most used amendment compared to other amendments in the US constitution is justifying a case dismissal order. The United States happens to be the only country in the world that has the exclusionary rule, which excludes any evidence obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment. This is meant to discourage police misconduct.

Ryan Garry explains, “We as Americans are extremely lucky to have the Fourth Amendment. We’re the only country in the world to have the exclusionary rule, which means that evidence that is seized in violation of the Fourth Amendment cannot be used against you in court. So if you’re driving a car and you have 80 kilos of cocaine in the car and the police illegally seize that cocaine, the cocaine cannot be used against you in court and the case will have to be dismissed.”

The Fourth Amendment guarantees the right of the people to feel secure in houses, persons, papers, and effects. Thus, no unreasonable searches and seizures are allowed and no warrants can be issued unless upon probable cause, supported by oath or confirmation, and specifically describing the place to be searched, and the things or persons to be seized.

Ryan Garry - MN Criminal Defense Attorney is knowledgeable and experienced regarding the various rights of people accused of crimes. For instance, he advises those accused to simply remain silent and not make a statement until they have their lawyer present who can advise them. In many cases where the police are contacting an individual to ask questions, they still don’t have sufficient evidence to make an arrest and they are simply hoping that the individual will make a statement that they could use to finally make an arrest. Thus, it is not advisable to the talk to the police or answer any questions without first consulting with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
